Calling all Londoners: this Thursday, the film made by Chris and Chris of Imperial College about electricity in Nepal will be premiering in London. I was lucky enough to tag along with them in November 2012 when they filmed it, so really excited to see the final product.

Powering the Top of the World
Nepal resides in a unique situation, trapped between two countries which are rapidly becoming the world’s largest energy consumers; it has vast clean energy resources, but as yet has had little success in harnessing enough energy to satisfy even its own modest domestic needs. Powering the Top of the World examines the transition of the country’s energy system and explores the challenges that this developing nation is facing in the current global geopolitical environment. With 1.2 billion people around the world having no access to electricity, and many more with an unreliable supply, Nepal’s challenges are echoed throughout the world. Through interviews with those in charge as well as the people whose daily lives are impacted, this film asks the question: what is Nepal’s energy future?
